Hi I'm Betzaida

About Me

I am a young mother of an 18 month old little girl & another little bundle of joy that we are expecting in October. I am an easy going & caring person. I love to dance & am most interested in cultural dancing. Tahitian & salsa are my favorites. I am currently a student studying Marriage, Family & Human Development. I love spending time with family. It's my most favorite past time. Although i also love being outdoors when the weather is nice. I love hiking & camping and just taking a stroll outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when she was just a teenager. After a rough childhood & a divorce, the only thing that continued giving her hope & peace in her life was the knowledge of the gospel & her personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. She has been an amazing example to me as i've watched how much she relies on prayer and help from above. As i grew up, i was curious and went wayward for a little while, just wanting to see what else was available out there. I soon realized that nothing else in life gave me the peace, joy & hope that the gospel has brought to my life. The greatest feeling in life is having a clear conscience and a deep & personal relationship with God. I strive everyday to be better, to come closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I strive daily to be a better person and to not only make covenants with my Heavenly Father but to keep those covenants to the best of my ability. I strive to learn and grow. I strive to live life in a way that will bring me happiness and i try to let go of those circumstances in life that i cannot control. Where i fall short i seek my Father in prayer and use the Atoning sacrifice of my Savior Jesus Christ to make up what i cannot do for myself. I love those around me, especially my family. But i try to love God first.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the sacrifice that Christ made, to give up his life & take our sins upon himself so that we can receive forgiveness. We are all imperfect & make mistakes. Through Christ we can be made pure so that we can live with our Father in Heaven again someday. Show more Show less
